Into the Woods
This weekend, the Dominican University Performing Arts Center is putting on its production of Stephen Sondheim’s Into the Woods. This musical features the Baker and the Baker’s Wife, as well as many other familiar fairy tale characters, as they venture into the woods to get their happily ever afters. The show consists of 22 actors, most of which are Dominican students. The stage crew is made up of members of the DU community as well.
Personally, being a theater geek in high school, I am thrilled to see this production. I try to attend most things put on by the theater department because I am never disappointed. The sets are always beautiful and the talent is amazing. Sondheim is a very unique lyricist (you may have seen his other work, Sweeney Todd) and the music for Into the Woods is pretty much awesome.
The play is Friday and Saturday at 7:30pm and Sunday at 3:00pm. Try to get out and see it. Tickets are only $5 with a DU ID!
